Charities across Scotland have had a great start to the year with funding from Corra Foundation. Over £150,000 has been awarded to 34 charities through the Foundation’s Henry Duncan Awards, and all the money will be used to help improve the lives of people who are disadvantaged.
Mary Craig OBE, Chief Executive of Corra Foundation, said: “Our first awards of 2013 range from £2,400 to £6,223 and support the work of charities from Shetland to the Scottish Borders. Ranging from IT training for people who are disabled to helping pay transport costs so people can attend a club for stroke patients and the rent of premises used by an alcohol counseling and advisory service, charities have got funding for work that directly helps the local people they support. Eighteen of our awards will help pay for salaries, and we know that the people doing these jobs are focused on delivering high quality services to make life better for disadvantaged people all across Scotland.”
The next deadlines for applications to the Henry Duncan Awards programme are the 18th March and 13th May.
